Song Of The One Legged Chicken
By Tom T. Hall
Written by Tom T. Hall
Album: Songs Of Fox Hollow (1974)
Tabbed by Larry Mofle

   C        F             C
Do you like true stories, I do
C              F            C
That's why I'm singin' this song
  F                     C
A song about one legged chicken
    D                         G
Who lives in the straw on the floor in my barn

I remember the day she was hatched out
The vet came to see her and said
She has only one leg, she'll never grow up
He said that chick would be better off dead

I said no let's just let her keep growing
We'll just wait and see how she gets
Before very long she was hoppin'
And peckin' and chasin' the bugs with the rest

And now she is a beautiful chicken
Though she has only one leg
When I go to see her each morning
She hops from the nest and she leaves me an egg and she cackles

Do you like true stories I do
That's why I've sung you this song
The song about the one legged chicken
Who lives on the floor in my barn
